Hand 2 Hand Home of Grace

There are a large number of under privileged communities struggling to survive in flimsy make-shift shelters, which offer only minimal protection against the harsh climatic conditions in Delhi. Disease is rife and this is exacerbated by severe malnutrition. Children, like their parents, have little or no opportunities for education and many spend their days scavenging and aimlessly roaming the streets.

Hand2Hand Home of Grace’s mission is to help the Under Privileged Children and their communities in New Delhi achieve a secure and sustainable future by addressing the root causes of their poverty and ill-health through a range of education and health-based projects currently being done at the operational Day Care Center in Nebsarai, New Delhi.


Hand2Hand operates a day care service with an emphasis on health & education for children, whose families cannot provide them with proper care given their financial situation. These families, for a variety of reasons, are now desperate. Their children cannot be sent to school or fed properly given their parents’ meagre wages.

The families have asked for help to take care of the children and provide them with a basic preschool education.

Some of them are still too small or not ready for school, but they have their own teacher who comes every morning to conduct a Montessori class. For one hour, they play with building block games and other exciting manual activities. They have a dedicated nap time every day to recover from the activities. A lot of focus and attention is given to their health condition & hygiene. The children are also given three healthy nutritious meals each day.

Hand2Hand also have an “EMPOWERMENT SHOPPE” project where hand woven products and crocheted products made by the Under Privileged Mothers they serve are sold and part of an Income Generation Program for them.

You can help.

Whether by volunteering to help at the centre or by donating much needed clothes (especially winter clothes) or books, the support is much needed and appreciated.

Please contact them and ask how or tell them how you would like to help.

You can also visit their Facebook page.
